New Homes in Gloucester

Gloucester, on the edge of the Cotswolds, is Britain’s most inland port. It has a rich and interesting history dating back as far as the Romans. As you’d expect from a modern city full of history, there is plenty to see and do there and in the surrounding areas. Whether you want to visit the many famous buildings, enjoy some retail therapy, get back to nature, or sample the produce at the local farmers’ market, you’ll find something for all the family to enjoy close to your new home in Gloucester.

Things to see and do

Gloucester Cathedral is both a stunning piece of architecture and a famous building. Not only does it have the largest stained-glass window in the UK, its cloisters have also been on the silver screen appearing as Hogwarts in the Harry Potter films. Other famous buildings or historical landmarks in the area include Prinknash Abbey, Great Witcombe Roman Villa, Blackfriars and Mariners Church.

If you and your family enjoy the great outdoors, Gloucester is ideally situated to experience the best of nature at Robinswood Country Park, Alney Island Nature Reserve, and the nearby Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Other family days out in and around Gloucester include trips to the National Waterways Museum, Gloucester Life Museum, the Soldiers of Gloucestershire Museum, and Gloucester Ski & Snowboard Centre.

For shopping head to the high-street, King’s Walk Shopping Centre, or Eastgate Shopping Centre to find all your favourite shops, while boutique shopping can be found in the many independent stores in the Cathedral Quarter. There’s also a weekly Friday farmers’ market in the city selling local and organic produce.
